I don't know if this would be classified as a tweak, but I guess it could be considered a tip, so I'll post here.
The last day or so, I've been listening to a CD burned from a download of the Ultimate Demo Disk 2 from Chesky Records.
I downloaded it as a set of FLACs and converted them to AIFF with Max, and burned a CD in iTunes. Been listening to the CD the last few days on my state of the art Sony Playstation, SPCH-101. I bought one of these for a whopping $34.95 on eBay after reading Art Dudley's review of it in October.
I gotta say the little 1st-gen Playstation, using a good pair of interconnects (I'm using a reasonably well burned-in set of Audioquest Copperheads), and the Dynaudio's (or the Era D4's for that matter), it all sounds pretty darn sweet.
It certainly isn't the last word when it comes to transparency or top-end air, but the little Playstation is impressive, very pleasant to listen to, and musical as all get-out. Maybe I don't know what I'm talking about when it comes to listening to audio equipment, but dayum, it sure sounds good to me.
Regardless, it is by far the best 35 clams I've ever spent on audio.
If only I didn't keep tripping over the cord to the multi-controller....
